Alleluia! My friend Sorcha has filed for divorce and packing the kids to move!!
She is leaving that wretched asshat, Priss-pot, whom I have blogged about before. Here is the short version for people who don’t want to click the link and read-up on it: he treats her like dirt and he hit her once.
Ironically, after 5 years of haranguing her about her salary not being enough to make her a valuable member of the family, Priss-pot is whining and wailing that he is going to be so hard pressed to make it on just his salary. He is also storming and hysterically demanding that she “acknowledge” that he has been supporting her for the last nine years of their marriage. She is an accountant. She has a record of every personal check she wrote to him, ever check she wrote to cover all the utilities, and credit card statements showing her monthly grocery bills. The fact that this concrete evidence showing that her contribution added up to MORE a month than the mortgage he paid has not swayed him from his pity-party. He just simply cannot believe she ever pulled her weight because where did his money go?? It went to games, movies, fast-food, and toys you stupid twatwaffle.
She is allowing him to buy her out of the house because he doesn’t want to be “forced to rent” because that is beneath his dignity. That’s fine, she just wants to be gone and will use the payout to put a down payment on a house in a couple of years. She suspects he really wants the house because he wants to put another mortgage on it to pay off his insane credit card debt.
Which reminds me – he is throwing a fit because her credit rating is better. They kept their accounts separate, and credit cards are not held jointly. Sorcha puts a few things on hers and pays them off monthly. She is never late on her bills. Of course she has good credit. He cannot see that having credit card debt of more than 1/2 his salary because he CANNOT control his impulse to buy all the neat things he so clearly deserves has caused a hit to his credit. He just knows her ability not to throw money out the window is somehow a trick just to hurt him.
He also wanted full custody of their 5 year old daughter, Gaia. She told him that was not going to happen and pointed out how much the legal fees would be if he even tried. He wants money way more than he wants to hurt her by trying to take Gaia, so he backed off. He then said he shouldn’t have to pay child support if he had joint custody. Sorcha’s lawyer actually laughed loud, since Priss-pot makes 5 times what she is making right now.
Sorcha knows he is going to be a total dickhead, but she doesn’t really care because at least she will be free of him. She is sad that Gaia will have to spend 1/2 her time with her dipshit dad, but she also knows her first two children survived joint custody with a narcissist and came out fine. Having a parent who gives unconditional love and pays for therapy when needed really helps that.
It’s all gonna be fine because she will never have to live with the goat-blower who hit her again.
